Chameleon Circuit is a band that plays music about Doctor Who, a genre which is called "Trock" (Time Lord Rock). Alex Day, one member of the band, was said to have created this genre, though other bands have played songs about Doctor Who before them. They originated on the video-sharing site YouTube, where all band members actively post videos and have used it as their main form of promotion for their songs. They have released two albums so far.
Chameleon Circuit is composed of five members currently: Alex Day (vocals, guitar, bass); Charlie McDonnell (vocals, guitar, keyboards, melidoca, ukulele); Liam Dryden (vocals, keyboard, bass); Ed Blann (vocals, guitar); and Michael Aranda (backing vocals, guitar, mixing). Chris Beattie (vocals, guitar, ukulele) is a former band member. Michael Aranda is the only American member of the band. All others are British, Liam Dryden being the only coming from Scotland.
